Posted to Envision New Braunfels Updates by Tyler Hoffmann

Efforts of residents, property owners, business and community stakeholders, has culminated in a public hearing draft of the Envision New Braunfels Comprehensive Plan — a plan designed to enhance the city’s quality of life over the next 15-plus years.

The project’s steering committee included Ron Reaves (Chair) Councilman, District 3; Michael Meek, President, New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce; Scott Haag, Comal County Commissioner, Precinct 2; Andrew Kim, Superintendent, Comal ISD; Jack Shanafelt, Guadalupe County Commissioner, Precinct 2; Stuart Hansmann, President, New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation; Randy Moczygemba, Superintendent, New Braunfels ISD; Atanacio Campos, Vice President, NBU Board; and Cory Elrod, Chairman, Planning Commission.

Nine assembled advisory groups focused on issues surrounding growth and future land use; urban design and cultural, heritage and historic preservation; education and youth; parks and recreation; economic competitiveness; tourism; transportation; natural resources and infrastructure; and facilities, services and capital improvements.

“Recognition goes to everyone who helped put together a comprehensive vision for New Braunfels,” Reaves said. “Because of them, we were able to put together a guide book, not a how-to book, which defines our values and our vision for New Braunfels. When people come here – seeking business or residential – we’ll be able to show them the comprehensive plan, which states our values, what we believe in and welcome them to become part of it.”

Christopher Looney, Planning and Community Development Director, and consultants from Design Workshop will present the draft plan to the New Braunfels Planning Commission on July 3.

The final draft of Envision New Braunfels will be presented for City Council adoption later this summer.
